Governments taking part in the UN-sponsored sustainable development goals process are still reluctant to talk about population.
That’s why it’s so important to have organizations like Population Matters to say that women’s rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights are not just ‘on the list’ of things that the world needs to do. They’re needed, together with small family messaging, if we are to be at all sustainable or to achieve real development for the world’s poorest communities. Development is not sustainable if it results in the destruction of the ecosystems and resources on which future generations depend.
